Simvastatin has proven to be a highly effective lipid-lowering drug and it is therefore indicated for all forms of severe primary hypercholesterolemia. The indications for lipid-lowering drugs occur mainly in individuals with high cholesterol levels and other coronary risk factors.
Simvastatin is used along with a proper diet to help lower “bad” cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, triglycerides) and raise “good” cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. It belongs to a group of drugs known as “statins.” It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by the liver. Lowering “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides and raising “good” cholesterol decreases the risk of heart disease and helps prevent strokes and heart attacks.
SIDE EFFECTS :
A very small number of people taking simvastatin may have mild memory problems or confusion. If these rare effects occur, talk to your doctor.
